Avinent looks at industry 4.0


Avinent held a corporate day with the team of 260 employees, on January 26th at the Món Sant Benet, where a 2017 overview of business was provided. Also, the company shared the strategy to continue progressing the important challenges in the coming years from the Avinent Science & Technology divisions.

Thanks to stable growth, the group closed the year at around €30 million and will continue to make major investments to develop all its business areas. "People and innovation are the basis for progress," said Albert Giralt, CEO of the company and member of the new board of CataloniaBio & HealthTech.

Joan Guasch, director of public programs at Eurecat and special guest at the event, spoke about the factory of the future and industry 4.0. The main ideas of his talk were that industries need secure quality digital infrastructures, an increase in technological supply is already leading to specialization and consequent creation of new business models, and industry 4.0 has huge potential to open the doors to reindustrialization.
